Danny Pedley enjoyed the ‘session of a lifetime’ at Pavyotts Mill landing five carp including a brace of forties weighing 42lb 6oz and 41lb.
Targeting the Maze Lake at the Somerset complex, the Dorset-based angler also helped himself to fish of 35lb, 32lb 9oz and 28lb 4oz.
All of his carp were taken on the same rod with he had baited with a 12mm Korda Pink Dumbell hookbait on a KD rig inside a solid PVA bag filled with bloodworm pellets.
He said: “It was definitely my best ever session. My previous pb was 34lb and I beat that three times during the trip. The two forties came out on the last day within half an hour of each other.”
